The Office of Veteran and Military Affairs will be participating in the 2016 Mid-Michigan Honor Flight. This event involves flying Michigan veterans to Washington, D.C. to tour our nation’s memorials. Veterans will depart the Lansing airport at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, June 8 and will return at 9:15 p.m. after spending the day in Washington, D.C. Flag lines will line both sides of the airport concourse to send off and welcome our veterans home.
Along with experiencing this amazing trip, the Honor Flight organizers also try to rally support in many ways. Participants will receive packets that include ‘mail call’ letters, cards and pictures from their community. These letters are expressions of gratitude for their bravery and sacrifice as they served their country. We are encouraging all LCC employees to visit the Office of Veteran and Military Affairs by May 13 to complete a small thank you note to be distributed to the veterans during their Honor Flight.
Additional volunteer opportunities are also available to help assist the organizers on the day of the Honor Flight.
